This study developed a portable acceleration monitoring device for gait assessments, and applied it to assess the gait of elderly. In a gait assessment experiment, 21 elderly subjects, wearing the portable acceleration monitoring device on their lower backs, walked on a test track. Four sets of evaluation indexes (physical activity, stability, symmetry, average speed) were derived from the acceleration data obtained in the experiment.
